September Beginnings & September Endings

September and I have always had our issues. It’s always tended to be a month of change (forced, with a lot of struggle), followed by a ‘down-and-out’ period, some self-reflection and eventually some sense of an action plan to get back on track – writing this I’m realising I am…
